Ebola: UBA Donates $1m To Affected Countries

The United Bank for Africa (UBA) Board Chairman, Tony O. Elumelu, has announced the donation of $1 million to assist the fight against Ebola currently ravaging three West African countries where UBA does business, namely Sierra Leone, Libe­ria and Guinea.
The money would be distributed through the UBA Foundation, UBA’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) arm and shared equally among the three affected West African countries. The remaining $100,000 is to be contributed to the African Union Support Mission to the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa (ASEOWA), initiated by the African Union Chair, Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma.
“Africa is our home and our destiny – and Africans need to place themselves at the fore­front of the campaign to over­come this tragedy. This dona­tion is an affirmation of our unshakeable commitment to the continent – and a message that Africa can triumph over this terrible affliction.
“I would also take this op­portunity to commend our courageous UBA Africa staff in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone who have kept every branch and ATM open throughout this trial time. They have demonstrated our cor­porate value of resilience and commitment that the business and progress of Africa must and should go on,” said Elu­melu.
